Good instruction is integral to developing student thinking and learning and this resources provides a wide variety of easy-to-implement classroom activities that build children’s number sense and early computation skills.

This resource was written in response to teacher requests. They wanted better insight into children’s mathematical development. This is the resource that will help them know: 

“What does this child’s thinking tell me about what he or she understands?”

 “Where does this child’s mathematical thinking lie on a framework of primary numeracy development?”

“What questions can I ask, or what activities can I do, to help this child move to the next phase?”
